The Secretariat, i.e., NASSCOM Foundation is laying the base for digital literacy in India by expanding and consolidating the ecosystem which is coming together in place for NDLM. Sustained efforts by all stakeholders on digital literacy awareness, education and training will help India take a lead in the global digital economy and shape a technologically empowered society. With active participation from all stakeholders, we can improve program standards and augment impact of NDLM centres.
These are the various ways in which contributions towards NDLM can be made:
Government Liaison: Companies can help us liaison and network with the government agencies on digital literacy awareness.
NDLM Centre: Partner with NASSCOM Foundation by providing funding for training centres across India.
Marketing/Publicity: Publicity is vital for any project. Any assistance in the domain of marketing and publicity can be a valuable contribution and help us maintain the momentum.
Finance: Financial assistance for the Secretariat can help meet some of the critical costs of the program. The Secretariat can provide support in creating a budget plan to help individuals and organizations meet their philanthropic goals and have the impact they want in the community.
